The Spanish MotoGP rider Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) expressed this Thursday that “when there are wet conditions, everything is open”, which benefited him in the last Japanese Grand Prix last weekend, so in the GP from Thailand will try to “work, but with a low profile”, on a track that he likes and where he was proclaimed eighth world champion.

“When there are wet conditions everything is open. At the fitness level it is less demanding, but it has to do with the sensations. In Motegi they were good, I told them not to touch anything after free practice. In Thailand, we will try to work well , but with a low profile,” said the man from Cervera at the press conference prior to the Thai Grand Prix, which takes place this weekend at the Chang International Circuit in Burinam.

The Spaniard is the only rider who has won on this track, which has only belonged to the World Championship in two previous seasons -2018 and 2019-. Therefore, he made it clear that it is a circuit that he “likes”. “But this year we don’t arrive in that same situation, we won’t get to the last corner and lap fighting for victory,” he lamented.

Marquez analyzed the “positive” weekend at Motegi, where he was fourth and achieved pole position almost 1,100 days later. “It was important to have that solid weekend. I finished the race in good shape, I was very careful during the race and I managed it well. We rode kilometers and I am already looking forward to Burinam,” he said.

“Since Jerez in 2020 I was not able to attack in the last laps because I felt pain, but in Motegi I was able to keep up and continue to push. I have a lack of power, but it is normal, the most important thing is that I was able to finish well,” he added about his fitness, which “will not be a problem” at the Thai GP.

Finally, the Spaniard analyzed the new aluminum swingarm that he tested in Motegi in the dry, while he opted for the carbon one in the race, a plan that will not change in Burinam. “We are trying to gather information, in the future we will have to test the carbon one with different specifications. We will try things for next year’s concept, it is not the best way to get a result, but I am ready to work for 2023,” he settled. .
